PROJECT TYPE Research
Unravelling the ability of a metabolic pathway to suppress normal immune system function in brain cancer:
Activity of an amino acid biochemical pathway is increased in brain cancer patients and leads to failure of the immune system to maintain control over brain cancer growth. This research aims to understand how this pathway interferes with the immune system to identify new treatment strategies for treating brain cancers.
